ALMI™ combines two effective cosmetic procedures for beautiful, yet natural cosmetic results. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we are proud to offer ALMI™ to residents of Columbia City, Evans, Augusta, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is ALMI™?
ALMI™ is a minimally invasive fat transfer technique that combines standard fat transfer procedures with PRP injections. Combining natural fat cells with the regenerative cells in PRP results in dramatic rejuvenation benefits, as well as a shorter recovery period. ALMI™ can be performed in the following areas:
- Face — With ALMI™, patients can enhance facial volume and address wrinkles and other signs of aging that have occurred due to the aging process.
- Scalp — ALMI™ can be used to stimulate natural hair growth, combatting hair loss.
- Vagina — Women can use ALMI™ to increase vaginal lubrication. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which can lead to a tighter and more sensitive vagina.
- Penis — Men can benefit from ALMI™ as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, or simply as a penile enhancement procedure.
How Much Does ALMI™ Cost?
The cost of your ALMI™ treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the ALMI™ Treatment Like?
The ALMI™ treatment begins with collecting fat for the transfer and blood for the PRP injections. Fat is collected using a liposuction technique, but we use a needle-sized cannula to prevent any scarring. We can take fat from the hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks or lower thighs, sculpting these areas in the process. The collected fat is then prepared for injection. Your blood will be taken just like you were having bloodwork done. Once collected, the blood is placed in a centrifuge, which is a machine that separates the components of the blood to develop PRP. Next, we inject the desired areas with the harvested fat. Once the fat is injected, we follow up with PRP injections. The full ALMI™ treatment takes less than one hour.
Is There Any Downtime After ALMI™?
Since the ALMI™ procedure involves several components, there is a brief period of downtime following the treatment. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling in the treatment areas that can last as long as a week. While you will be able to resume light activities on the day of treatment, we recommend that you avoid exercise and any strenuous activities for a few days to allow the body to recover.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from ALMI™?
The results from ALMI™ will be visible immediately. These results will continue to improve as the transferred fat settles, swelling fades, and PRP stimulates growth and healing in the treated areas. Unlike dermal filler treatments, the volume attained from a fat transfer will not be broken down by the body over time. While you will still experience gradual changes due to the natural aging process, you can expect your results to be permanent.
